PIP assessment

Hello everyone,

I have suffered from severe depression most of my adult life (now 53). I have 2 or 3 or 4 bad days a week. I have just had a PIP assessment and have been refused, with zero points on every section. The explanations all state that I seemed fine when interviewed by an assessor. I stated numerous times in my application that I have good days and bad days, but they have only considered the one good day.

I have a doctor’s report, and a report from the psychiatric hospital I attend.

I am now going to ask for a re-consideration. Then I shall appeal.

I was confident I would be awarded PIP, but got all zeros. They are stopping my DLA in two weeks. Does not seem right.

I know you can’t say with certainty, but do you think I have a good case for appeal?
